L'Oreal Infallible Matte Max Lipstick 002 Like A Virgin | Review
L'Oreal Infallible Matte Max Lipstick 200 Like A Virgin - £6.99
A few weeks ago I wrote this blog post about my new purchases from Boots and this was one of them. When I ordered it I'd not read any reviews about the lipstick, and I hadn't even seen anyone mentioning it so I was surprised when it arrived.
The applicator is not what I was expecting, and it reminds me of an eyeshadow stick. I was curious as to how this would work for picking up the product. As you can see from the photo above, all of the lipstick itself is in the lid and you just dip it in the end and voila. I quite like the idea of the applicator, although it took a few uses to get used to it, purely because it's not what I expected! The shade itself isn't the shade I expected, it's a lot more bright than the swatch on the Boots website, but it's perfect for Spring.
It's wearable for both day time and evening, without being too in your face for the day time. I've been loving wearing it to uni and going out for the day. The staying power is pretty good too, but after a few hours of chatting and drinking coffee, it does need to be touched up. It's not drying on the lips either which is great, as we all know that matte lipsticks can be.
I have enjoyed wearing this lipstick and I'm glad it's in my collection as it's my current go to everyday lipstick for Spring! I'm definitely going to pick up a few more shades I have my eyes on (001 and 006 so far are looking like the ones to try next).
Have you tried these lipsticks?
